TONIGHT! Wednesday, Nov. 18th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: HAND TURKEYS, a CraftNight Annual!
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: Thinking’s fine, drinking’s fun!
It’s our last week in November for Crafts, we take next week off because Akbar will have you shaking your giblets to some serious beats starting at 9pm, it’s called PIE!!! And there really will be delicious pies for sale by Tammie Brown, more details, info, etc. down in the Cornucopia section of this bulletin.
Now then. CraftNight’s Annual Autumn Tradition: THE GRAND AMERICAN HAND TURKEY.
I bet you just think you’re walking around with hands like any regular ol’ day, not knowing that you can trace them and make the tracings into turkeys for the purpose of artistic satisfaction! You and your opposable thumbs are just that much more awesome, you’re sitting on a craft goldmine! It’s a time-honored convention of grade school glory, and if you haven’t made one in a few years, or even if you made one yesterday… well… you can never make enough hand turkeys.
Make a Hand Turkey(s), tonight, made of paper, made with glitz and glamour or down-home sensibilities. You make hand turkeys, and you gaze at them over gravy, or you give them to those you love. We’ll show you how to do it, it’s quite simple, a lot of fun, and it’s your last time to see us before we take the rest of the month off and emerge with December crafts!
Your hand turkey can be a manifestation of your mood, your outfit, your political beliefs, your favorite colors. Your turkey can be anything you want it to be, it can be a night or day turkey, it can be a turkey posing with a wagon wheel, or a turkey that just got a prank call from Ruth Bader Ginsburg! You can make 10 of these tonight and then distribute them around your neighborhood. Or you can make four of them and make a Warhol-esque quad of turkey heads for your wall.
